PC Stock Certificate Information
Here are links to photos of two different series of PC stock certificates. The first one has the original company name, Pennsylvania-New York Central Transporation Company, while the second stock was the more common certificate for the PC's parent company, the Penn Central Company. The artwork on the stock depicts a winged mercury running through a landscape of trains, office buildings, pipelines, etc., indicating the diverified direction that the Penn Central Company intended to go. No doubt he's actually running from his creditors....
After the Conrail takeover, Penn Central continued to exist, now called the Penn Central Corporation. Here is one of their later stocks--this one is dated 1980.
By the way, Penn Central stock certificates are worthless today, other than possibly to collectors of old stocks. If you have old PC stock certificates and want to get any money for them, try selling them on eBay.
